Ruben began his career as an EMT nearly 20 years ago, helping those who could not help themselves: seniors, homeless, substance abusers, mentally-ill, and survivors of domestic violence. He has serviced small towns and large communities; busy interstates and Native American reservations; border towns and metropolitan areas. Eventually, Ruben obtained his paramedic certificate and began work for the Gila River Indian Community which helped him to better understand some of what he had missed growing up. He later earned a bachelors, masters, and law degrees.
Ruben holds a Master’s Degree in Military History with a specialty in Counter-terrorism, which is particularly important for the position of Secretary of State. He also holds FEMA Incident Commander certificates and other extensive emergency response training.
He is running for Secretary of State in California to reform our elections and restore the voice of THE PEOPLE in our democracy. His solutions include getting rid of proprietary software, ensuring paper ballots, hand counts and forensic audits. Ruben knows that the future of our country is at stake, and will do what it takes to secure our elections. Ruben is running a grassroots campaign and is not accepting corporate money.
